London Through My Lens | Barbican

The Barbican is a little like Marmite; 
you either love it or hate it.
I fall somewhere between the two.   
The architecture is often described as brutal,
which, when compared to other areas of London, is a fair assessment.
The Brainy One has a friend from university days who lives here.
In the penthouse of one of the tower blocks, no less.
A number of years ago, I had the opportunity for a good look around the apartment.
There were visible gaps around the window frames, I swear,
 where the concrete was crumbling away.
The Barbican isn’t for me, but it has its devotees.

This post ties in with Helena’s Snap theme for 2016:
three or more linked images.

  1. Splendid photos, Ruth. I enjoyed a visit to it, and liked the concept of a place where people could live in the middle of the arts – but the reality could clearly be different!


  2. I think it is a sign of architecture of it's time. Although I live in the country I do find walking around London and other big cities fascinating. I love to look at the architecture as long as I don't have to share the pavement wit too many people! Mind you I lived in London for 6 years and would jostle through the crowds with everyone else then!
